My self-summary
I'm Mike. I moved up here from Florida a few years ago, and recently relocated from New Hampshire to Boston. I'm looking to meet some good people in the area. I like music, language, math, backpacking, and fellow Homo sapiens.

I'm often sarcastic but always well intentioned. I am a genuine, analytical, and generally down-to-earth guy.
What I’m doing with my life
I have degrees in math and physics. I'm currently working on a startup in Boston and am still toying with the idea of going back to grad school.

I like to hike, snowboard, rock climb, and do other outdoorsy things. I spend a lot of time staring at computer screens and sometimes I forget to go outside and run around, so I'm always looking for new activities. I'm trying to climb every 4000+ ft mountain in New Hampshire (there are 48 of them, as it turns out).

Travelling is fun, and always yields a new perspective on the world. I've got three continents down so far, working on the fourth.

Sometimes I fly airplanes.
I’m really good at
things that go *whrrr* and *bzzzt*; being a night owl; answering rhetorical questions.

I find the study of our physical world fascinating. I like to know how things work. I'm sufficiently adept at computering, and know way too much about Turing machines.
The first things people usually notice about me
My left nostril is slightly larger than my right one.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to make the most of my excursion through the universe, random philosophical questions, some logic puzzle I saw earlier this week, whether I remembered to buy eggs this morning, when to use ligatures, my last adventure, my next adventure, or whatever other bunk is currently squatting on my mental real estate.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having backyard barbecues with friends, lying on the roof of my car at 3 in the morning, getting lost, getting unlost, or just sitting back with a craft beer and a good book.
